Madagascar goes festive
20 December 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Merry Madagascar is a made for television special that sees the zoo animals trying to escape Madagascar and get back to their zoo in New York before Christmas.

They try to escape by a hot air balloon which is shot down by King Julius and his band of lemurs who mistake them for the Red night goblin.

This is because every year on December 24th someone flies through the sky showering coals at Julius. Alex the lion shoots down this villain and discover that its is Santa Claus and he now has amnesia.

Alex and the gang have to save Christmas by delivering the presents and reindeer's and penguins need to put their old rivalry aside.

The animation short, it is only about 20 minutes long and is a festive cash in but their is enough pizazz in the story to keep the young ones interested with a dash of Romeo and Juliet thrown in as the penguins with the help of magic dust help the animals deliver the presents.

The animation is rather vanilla but good enough for a television special and DVD extra.
